Recycling Center Moving Friday, Sept. 28

As the new library prepares for construction to begin in October, movement on the site (northwest corner of Railroad and 4th Ave.) has begun . 

The recycling center on Railroad Ave. will move to its new location near the wastewater treatment plant (198 2nd Ave.) on Friday, September 28. The new location is accessible from the east side of 2nd Ave., across from the Bohn Park entrance. While the recycling center will be open for use once the dumpsters have been relocated, the cardboard compactor will not be operable for 1-2 weeks. During this time, please break down and place cardboard in the open recycling bins. 

In addition, the RTD lot, located at 4th Ave. and Broadway has permanently closed as a parking lot. Alternative parking and RTD pick-up is available on Railroad Ave. (one-way road), along US-36 eastbound.

4th Ave. Gas Line Work

XCel Energy will be installing a new gas line on the northern-most cul-de-sac of 4th Avenue. Residents within the project area will have access to and from homes. However, due to the intrusive nature of the underground work, traffic north of McCall Alley may experience delays.

Xcel anticipates construction to begin on Monday, October 1.

National Drug Take-Back Day

Drug Take-Back Day

October 27 | 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. | Sheriff's Lyons Substation, 430 Park Ave.

The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Unused or expired medication can be safely disposed of at the Boulder County Sheriff's Substation in Lyons, 430 Park Ave.

Please do not flush unused, unwanted, and expired medications down the toilet or put them in drains! Although flushing medication was a common practice used in the past, new studies show that prescription and over-the-counter drugs are not completely removed when passing through waste water treatment plants. Harm to marine and plant life can be caused by improper disposal.

Drug abuse isn't just about street drugs - over-the-counter medications are the most commonly abused drugs in the U.S. Keeping expired or unused medication can lead to accidental drug overdose by children, drug abuse, theft and illegal distribution. Keep your family safe.
